The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) has announced the next webinar in its Livable Communities Webinar Series, “Impact of the New MUTCD on Pedestrians and Bicyclists.” The webinar will review the significant revisions to traffic control that affect pedestrians and bicyclists. These changes appear in the most recent update to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), released by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in December 2009.
Traffic control devices are the signs, traffic signals, and pavement markings that guide motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. The MUTCD defines the standards used by road managers in the U.S. to install and maintain traffic control devices on all streets and highways.
The webinar will be held Thursday, April 15, 2010, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. CDT. Presenters include Bruce Friedman, a Transportation specialist, and Scott Wainwright, a highway engineer, both of whom work for FHWA.
